Outdoors & Nature
Adventure lies around every corner in South Walton. While you could easily spend the entire day soaking up the Florida sunshine, shopping, dining or relaxing along our 26 miles of sugar-white sand and turquoise water, and we wouldn’t blame you, why not get out and explore?
There are endless ways to quench your thirst for adventure in South Walton. With access to the Gulf of Mexico and the Choctawhatchee Bay, dropping a line and reeling in the big one is a true Florida adventure. With four state parks and Point Washington State Forest, hit the trails and traverse your way through the scrub oaks and pines all while catching a glimpse of the local birds and wildlife.
If a truly unique South Walton experience is what you’re looking for, be sure to check out the rare coastal dune lakes that dot the coast. These incredibly diverse bodies of water are a combination of freshwater and saltwater, and are home to their own special ecosystems. With 15 dune lakes to explore, you’d have to travel to New Zealand, Australia, Madagascar or the Pacific Northwest to find them outside of South Walton.
Everything about South Walton inspires you to be outdoors. The sights, sounds and smells challenge you to take full advantage of your senses.
